Comments: Great fucking song here.  The first thing you'll probably notice is
the obscene degree of palm muting in the song, which probably spreads to more
than half of the notes.  At least that's the first thing I notice when I started
working on this.  If you notice anything wrong with this bad Larry, let me know
so I can take of it.  Thanks.
